Gal Gadot unable to host Eurovision next year in Israel

Israeli Hollywood star Gal Gadot’s press agency says she is unable to accept offer to host next year's Eurovision Song Contest, citing scheduling conflicts and previous commitments.

The Israeli Hollywood actress Gal Gadot has been asked to host the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest set to be held next year in Israel, though the agency representing her said she cannot accept the offer due to a scheduling conflict.



"Gal would be happy to host and take part in the Eurovision, but unfortunately, schedule constraints and previous commitments do not permit it," her agency, ADD, said in a statement.

Israel is set to host the contest after Netta Barzilai won the 2018 competition earlier this month, netting the country its fourth ever Eurovision win.


It is expected to take place in Jerusalem but its official location will be announced by September by Public Broadcasting Corporation—the Kan 11 television network—which will produce and broadcast it.

Gadot had been a strong supporter of Barzilai during the competition, even urging her fans on social media to vote for her.


The Israeli movie star has seen a meteoric rise to fame recently as the star of the critically acclaimed box-office hit Wonder Woman.
